So, what on earth is this?
A free-form group roleplay set in a fictional professional wrestling promotion with some rather explicit rules modifications.Who is it open to?
Anyone with an interest.What category?
Most likely Extreme for the most freedom but I imagine the most we will regularly see is NC.How frequently should people be able to post?
Once a week is the hard limit although I'd hope for slightly more than that.How many players?
As many as possible. The more people means the more variety with matchmaking. A lower limit of around four to six.So, give me the brief concept...
Wild Wrestling Extreme is a wrestling promotion like any other. With the main difference being the stripping your opponent, humiliating them and making them orgasm isn't just allowed, it's positively encouraged.How will it work?
WWE runs “Thursday Night Spankdown”, it's major TV show. After every fourth Spankdown there is a major show with a specific title. The majority of the RP will be during those shows; either having matches against other players or doing things backstage (be it interacting, cutting a promo, setting up ambushes or anything else you can think of). Players will roleplay out the wrestling matches, the aftermath and anything that happens backstage.Wait... did you say orgasms earlier?
Indeed. In addition to the usual ways to win a wrestling match (pin, count out, submission, disqualification) the WWE has implemented a best of three falls orgasm rule; the first wrestler to make their opponent cum twice wins the match. Almost all the wrestlers, especially the heels, like to use it. Some of the more malicious wrestlers are known to take advantage of the fact each part is allowed one “free” orgasm to make a beaten opponent sexually service them before putting them away. Likewise post-match attacks are common... it's not a rare sight to see the victor force the loser into sexual servitude in the middle of the ring.
With the orgasm rules in mind the WWE has also taken a somewhat loose view on the use of foreign objects. Shots with weapons... be they canes, chairs, title belts etc... are all banned except in situations where they are used against an opponents sensitive areas such as crotch or breasts; the WWE is more than happy for one wrestler to spank the other. Likewise sex toys and bondage restraints are all allowed... and it seems one of the careless ring crew always leaves a big pile of goodies beside the ring to be used.
Wrestling is fake right?
In the real world, maybe (depending on how you define fake). In this world, no. “Kayfabe
” is in full effect here; Tina the Sexy Ballerina really is a sexy ballerina and really is named Tina, If two people hate each other in the ring, they also hate each other when the cameras go off. We're playing it straight; wrestling is real, the moves are real, the matches are unscripted etc etc.Good guys and bad guys?
Yep, the heel
divide is in full effect. I'm happy to accept perhaps one or two “tweeners” (neutrals who are cheered or boo'd depending on their opponent) but on the whole this will be the good vs the bad, the honourable vs the despicable.
On that note, I'm not particularly looking for “anti-hero” characters. If your character cheats, exploits, manipulates etc etc then they're almost certainly going to be a “heel” (the bad guy) in a match. On the whole matches will be between faces and heels unless a storyline requires there not to be.You gave a brief run down earlier... how about a slightly deeper one?
Taking on the role of the booker, I'll assign matches for each show. So before a show I'll note that say Tina and Cheerleader Clara are facing off. The two players will then roleplay out the match in one thread (the “show thread”). In addition any backstage interactions can also be dealt with (in the “backstage” thread) such as Tina cutting a promo on Clara or Clara deciding to try an ally with Rochelle “The Bitch” Rhodes. And of course, wrestlers have also been known to intefere in others matches.How do we work out who wins a match?
I'd hope that people can get in contact OOC before a match and work out the details there. Clearly there's an element of “losing is fun” if one is playing a submissive character... although I should note that not every match should be a dominant character beating a submissive one; there are more than enough opportunities for a submissive character to be suitably used while also picking up the win.
If working out who wins before a match either doesn't or can't happen then people can roleplay the match out and see if a winner naturally emerges. This can be more challenging and everyone has to accept that their character can lose.
If there's really no way to find an acceptable solution for both players then I reserve the right to assign a winner myself. In general I'll do this by quite literally flipping a coin but there many be times where the storyline suggests a winner and I'll try to follow that.
On the storylines point, there will be times when a storyline requires a distinct winner and loser of a match. If that's the case I'll contact the players in question and let them know, explain why it's needed and talk about how we can set it up.Isn't this all a bit competitive?
Not if I can help it. In the real world pro-wrestling isn't about “winning”, it's about telling stories (be it within a match or across a number of weeks/matches) and that's what I'm going for here. Wrestlers lose matches all the time and it doesn't make them a bad wrestler; “losing” an rp wrestling match doesn't make one a bad roleplayer. This isn't an e-fed where the selling point is competitive writing, the aim here isn't to “beat” the writer behind your character's opponent, it's to tell the best story you can with them.I don't enjoy my characters being submissive...
No worries. There are lots of ways a wrestler can lose while remaining dominant. Perhaps they completely control the match, strip their opponent, spank them, humiliate them, make them orgasm once... and then get caught with a rollup out of nowhere and lose the match. Or perhaps to further humiliate their opponent they make them sexually service them... only for the “losing” wrestler to take advantage and quickly force them to cum twice, losing the match.
Hell, while WWE emphases the sexual wrestling part, there's no reason that one couldn't have a “normal” pro wrestling match with no sexual elements at all.
What tone are you going for?
Pretty light-hearted. Obviously there's likely to be a lot of NC content considering the nature of the wrestling but there's a certain camp and silly nature inherent to grown adults leaping around in their underwear to entertain a paying audience while going through storylines that sometimes make soap operas roll their eyes. I want to capture that. For a good example of the sort of tone I'd like (and to see where a lot of my inspiration came from) check out this NSFW website
and watch some of the NSFW
I'd also note that despite the NC content there's no reason that there can't also be consensual scenes, especially backstage.
As a final point on this I should note it's more of a pro-wrestling rp then a catfight, MMA or mixed wrestling RP. I'd like the matches to read like a pro-wrestling match, complete with bodyslams, punches, kicks, elbow drops, clotheslines etc. A kinky pro-wrestling match sure... but still a pro-wrestling match.So it's all just meaningless fighting and sex then?
No. Just as in pro-wrestling in the real world, there's a plot behind the action. Even companies that emphasise ring work rather than angles have storylines running through their shows. Perhaps it as simple as a quest for a title or a feud forming after one wrestler can't accept another beat them. But pro-wrestling is about storylines and so is this. Obviously there will be fighting and sex; that's basically the core of the RP, but the context of the fighting and sex is important.
The starting storyline will be a tournament to crown the first WWE champion. Hopefully some stories organically grow from that but I'm completely open to player ideas and can throw my own in as well.
All the pictures and the videos are of women wrestling women. Are men allowed in the ring?
I'm somewhat ambivalent about this but as a starting point would say female characters only... although I can easily be convinced the other way if there's enough interest. If there are male characters then they're equal to the women and can lose to them just as easily as any other woman could.What sort of characters do you want?
Anything really... but there has to be a gimmick. A gimmick in pro-wrestling is basically what makes a character unique and, in this case, will likely be based somewhat about stereotypes. “The Cowgirl” Jessie James won't just be called “The Cowgirl”; she'll dress, look and act like a stereotypical cow girl. Not everything has to be quite that un-nuanced but it's the sort of thing we're looking for.

Heel or Face (Goodie or Baddie)
: “You are not worthy”, “On your knees, peasant.”Appearance
: A full-figured but athletic brunette, Diana works out extensively to keep herself in prime fighting shape.In-Ring Attire
: The Countess wrestlers in a black sports pra and underwear set, with dark fishnets covering the whole of her legs. She wears dark boots and protective wraps around her wrists.Out-of-Ring Attire
: Diana tends to favour classical, aristocratic outfits with a distinct BDSM influence to them and occasionally made out of rubber or latex.Biography/Gimmick
: Claiming aristocratic roots “The Countess” Diana Cross arrived in the WWE, snapping with her British accent and demanding that she be announced as the champion as there was no-one more deserving then her. Cruel, heartless and with nothing but contempt for anyone who stands against her she delights in not just beating but humiliating her opponents. Incredibly proud she takes any slight personally and holds grudges deeply. Arrogant and obnoxious but with a certain amount of charisma and a lot of money she tends to rub any right-thinking person the wrong way but has an ability to attract (or at least pay) more malicious individuals to work for her.
Her arrogance is also her biggest weakness. While she will take any short-cut she can and do everything possible to stack the odds in her favour, once she has the upper hand... and especially if she has the opponent naked and humiliated... she will take them extremely lightly, preferring to continue her assault rather than winning the match and thus leaving herself open to being upset. That said one should not forget that even if one is able to outwit her schemes and defeat her henchwomen, the Countess remains a dangerously and highly skilled wrestler who is well able to hold her own.Any additional information
: It is whispered in the WWE locker room that Diana Knight has an extremely close relationship with the mysterious booker and will always try to leverage that relationship in to getting the best deal for herself. Entrance Music
: O Fortuna by Carl Orff.Finishing Move Name
: Droit du SeigneurFinishing Move Description
: A jumping backbreaker
, the Countess stands beside her opponent and wraps her arms around their waist, lifting them sideways. She then jumps and lands on one knee, driving the opponent's back across her upturned knee and leaving them stunned and unable to move... a helpless victim for either a pin or a prolonged sexual assault.Signature Moves and Descriptions
: A triangle choke
, the Countess wraps her legs around the head, throat and one arm of the opponent and pulls down on their head, compressing the throat and choking them. The Countess is known to rather enjoy the sensation of her opponents struggles as they try to escape and has a tendency to occasionally loosen the hold to prolong the experience until she orgasms at least once.
: A crotch claw, the Countess drives her fingers into the opponents groin, penetrating them and gripping hard. Notably more effective if she can get past their underwear or bottoms, the Countess can either squeeze painfully searching for a submission or tease and pleasure an opponent until they orgasm.Character On & Offs (if different to players)
: The Countess is a dominant and ruthless bi-sexual who delights in dominating others. Player On & Off's apply; if something works for the story I have no objection to it being done to the Countess (or the Countess doing).
1) You'll find the Oath of Drake here
. I'm not going demand people swear it but it gives some useful ideas when it comes to group game etiquette.
2) Respect players On & Offs. If in doubt get in contact and check.
3) God modding is an awkward one in this case. The golden rule remains thoughts; one should never dictate what another writer's character thinks. But the nature of pro-wrestling means that it could be incredibly awkward to do if we allow no god-modding of actions; you either need to do exceptionally short posts or fill it with conditional statements (“if she can grab her wrist, she tries to whip her towards the ropes. If she can whip her towards the ropes she...”). As such I expect there to be some level of godmodding to enable better writing. Play it by ear, stay cautious and send a PM if you're ever in doubt.
4) Communicate. Group games tend to live or die by communication (or lack thereof). They'll be an OOC thread. They'll be a plotting/”call out” thread. There are PM's. Talk to each other and talk to me. If you have a question, ask. If you have an idea, post it. If you want to suggest something or work something out, get in touch.
5) I mentioned above a hard limit of one week between posts (at least without warning). Because of the show driven nature of the narrative if one match doesn't finish the show has to go on... and on and on and on. As such if things are being stretched I'll step in as GM and NPC a missing character to conclude the match.
If you're unable to post a reply then let people know; it should smooth things for everyone. Likewise if you suspect you'll be unable to post for a while let us know. That means I can avoid booking your character in a match and thus avoid holding up the show. At the same time the backstage area is still open to you... not having a match has never stopped pro-wrestlers from being involved in something... so if you find you can post feel free to leap in.
